“The launch of Heart & Lung institute at Global Health City would offer entire range of advanced health care facility including diagnostics, consultation, treatment & rehabilitation” he added.
With alarming statistics reading heart disease as the biggest killer in urban India today, it is estimated that 60% of the world's heart disease will belong to India (and Indians) in the near future. Indians are genetically prone to heart disease. Our sedentary and stressed modern lifestyle just multiplies the risk. In fact, an Indian is four times as likely to suffer from heart disease as compared to his Western counterpart. A heart attack also brings a lot of emotional turmoil for the family; it doesn't only affect the one who gets a heart attack.
